Situated in the Minho region, Braga is the most ancient city of Portugal.
Founded in 16 b.c. by the Romans it was called Bracara Augusta as an homage to the roman emperor Augustus.
It’s a city that has grown in the likeness of Rome, having lots of squares and churches where the Baroque style became predominant in the eighteenth century.
There’s a lot to see and discover in this beautiful city.
My favorite thing is walking around the streets enjoying its architecture, stop for a good traditional meal at a restaurant or café.
You can also take a tour to “Bom Jesus de Braga”, an important religious monument with famous steps and an incredible view over the city.
Surrounding this monument there is a luxurious green hill with gorgeous places where you can rest, have a picnic and enjoy the calm scenery.
